A couple more updates. I am going to work this one right to the wire I think. It’s out of my comfort zone but I am enjoying it.
1. Faber-Castell Polychromos do not like Stonehenge paper.
2. I like Stonehenge paper more than I thought.
3. Derwent Coloursofts and Derwent Drawing pencils absolutely love this paper. They go on like velvet.
4. I need to go back to doing the transfer method of drawing as I hate seeing my gridlines and drawing outlines.
After drawing the figures at the top of the composition with Polychromos, I changed to Coloursofts and Drawing for the graffiti wall which work so much better on the Stonehenge. I can’t explain fully and maybe it’s my drawing style but the Polys slid, clumped and shone on the paper in ways I didn’t like. I don’t feel the benefit of using Stonehenge with them. But the other pencils are grabbed by the velvet-like Stonehenge and build in dense waves of colour.
Anyway, onwards I plough.
